Next Monday at 1:00am GMT, on matchday 39 of the MLS, we will see Chicago play MON at SeatGeek Stadium.

Currently sitting in second place, MON will travel to Chicago, who are 11 places lower in the League and sit in thirteenth place.

Chicago Fire have so far accrued 30 points in this season of the MLS

Only a positive result will be acceptable for Ezra Hendrickson’s men, following their recent home defeat at the hands of New York in their last match.

Also, Ezra Hendrickson knows that a run of 11 losses in 19 meetings for his Chicago side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. With 30 points, they currently sit thirteenth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.

Chicago have won five fixtures, drawn four meetings, and lost four fixtures of their 13 League matches at home this season.

A win in this fixture would take Chicago Fire’s points to 33 in the League.

Montréal’s MLS season, has so far seen them gain 46 points, going into this game

MON will hope to increase their wins in a row, having secured a 4-0 victory over New England Revolution in their last fixture.

Also, MON keep finding ways to win, having secured 12 victories in their last 20 games is astonishing this season. Now they have 0 matches won, 0 games lost and 0 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in second place, with a total of 46 points.

MON’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Chicago. In the 13 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won seven matches, drawn two meetings, and lost four fixtures.

Victory for Montréal would take their points tally to 49 so far this season.
